This minimally invasive procedure involves inserting a scope through the urethra into the bladder. A cystoscopy can be used to help diagnose a problem with your urethra, bladder, or kidneys. Performing this procedure in an office setting is more convenient and less expensive for the patient than in an outpatient facility.
A urodynamic study is a series of tests that gives your doctor a detailed look at the function of your bladder and urethra. These tests can help your doctor evaluate any problems you may be having with storing urine or voiding (eliminating) urine from your body. Performing this procedure in an office setting is more convenient and less expensive for the patient than in an outpatient facility.
A prostate biopsy is done to help confirm whether or not you have prostate cancer. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the prostate gland. This image helps guide the doctor as a biopsy (taking small tissues samples) is done. These samples of prostate tissue can then be checked for cancel cells.
A vasectomy is a simple, safe procedure that makes a man sterile (unable to father a child). It is the most effective birth control method for men. Most patients choose to have this simple, safe, and effective procedure done in the office for both convenience and economic reasons. Patients are given a mild sedative for the brief procedure, and recovery time is minimal.
